On-Demand data center interconnection platform deploys PoP

Datacenter.com, an international data center services provider, announced that DCspine has opened a Point-of-Presence (PoP) in Datacenter.com’s new Amsterdam facility. 

DCspine is an on-demand is a fully automated, scalable, high capacity data center interconnection platform designed for the cloud era. 

It delivers a virtual Meet-Me-Room (MMR) interconnecting more than thirty Netherlands-based data centers through software-defined networking.

Developed and owned by Eurofiber Group, a Netherlands-based provider of digital infrastructure services in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany, DCspine is a high capacity, ‘Terabit’ interconnection platform designed to innovate data center interconnection in the Netherlands and beyond. 

Eurofiber has invested several millions of euros in its DCspine platform to provide carrier-neutral data centers and their customers with the flexibility required to optimize cloud service delivery and meet the requirements set by on-demand services models.

The DCspine PoP being deployed in Datacenter.com’s new Amsterdam facility would allow Datacenter.com customers to establish easy, fast and cost-efficient cross-connections (up to 100G per connection) with other data centers in the region and beyond. 

DCspine can be seen as an MMR for all connected data centers. 

The online portal offers Datacenter.com customers the opportunity to establish connectivity ‘on-demand’ with other data centers in both the metropolitan area as well as deeper to the edge of the network.

The DCspine Point-of-Presence allows Datacenter.com customers to easily deploy disaster recovery (DR) data center locations thus executing their business continuity plans. 

It also enables them to ensure network continuity and uptime guarantees during IT infrastructure migration to the Datacenter.com AMS1 facility. 

The DCspine platform would provide its services truly on-demand, as connectivity products purchased through the DCspine online portal, such as bandwidth or a point-to-multipoint connection, can be ordered, adjusted or deleted at any time.
 
With the deployment of a PoP in Datacenter.com’s new data center, DCspine has expanded its ecosystem of data centers to over thirty connected facilities in the Netherlands. 

Next to Datacenter.com, the data center ecosystem includes companies like Equinix, Interxion, EvoSwitch, NLDC, Digital Realty, Alticom, Dataplace, and now also Datacenter.com.

DCspine will further invest in connecting other data center locations.
